The roundhouse is a great location to see. Brandon was our tour guide and he was very entertaining as well as informative. Got to try a two-minute old beer which was great. The cost was a great value between the beer samples on the tour and the tour options with either souvenirs or beer options. Highly recommend the tour if... More

Such a fun way to spend a little bit of your day. Get some tasty beer samples and hear about how Steam Whistle was started up. Our guide was just great!

Brought my husband here for a milestone birthday, 25 years, haha. We had a good time. the beer is great and the tour sparks that Canadian pride a little bit. I wish we could have gotten a chance to see a bit more of the process, more of the work that goes into making the beer and even the bottle... More

We did not actually enter the museum but there is enough steam trains outside to get a feel of the attraction. There was a mini steam train which went around the the museum park with the CN Tower in the backrground which my three young chlildren loved which was well worth the money (2$ child, 3$ adult).

What a fun way to spend an hour or so! For a minimal fee ($10 on up), we received a tour of the factory, several samples, a freshly bottled beer (right off the line), and had a very enjoyable tour guide. There's also a nice assortment of t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. available for purchase. The tour begins and ends in the... More

Got to the Brewery a little early & enjoyed a sample beer. Got upstairs & got a bottle of beer to drink on the tour. Liked how we had our own stethoscope-type device to listen to the tour as it was happening. Was interested in every aspect of the brewery. We all had a good time. When the tour was... More

Everybody at this brewery was very friendly! Complimentary beer to start while you wait. Had a pretzel with mustard and pickle which are a great idea. The tour was good fun and included another beer and lots of information from Brandon the tour guide. He obviously loves working at the brewery and made our trip very enjoyable! Highly recommended.

This is a definite must see if you are in downtown Toronto. It is right across the street from the CN Tower. It is a fun and quirky place with a pseudo-1950s ambiance. Every employee and tour guide was enthusiastic and clearly loved working there. The beer is solid, nothing special, but this is a unique experience that any tourist... More
